back to domestic policy. is president wrapping up his vacation at martha's vineyard. we have images of the president playing golf yesterday with larry david. aside from him being on vacation, he's coming back to a lofty, lofty administration. and he's got immigration reform, gun control, a deficit deal. what, if any, can he accomplish? >> he's got a big fall coming up. that is why he cut his vacation short. he only went eight days this year instead of the normal two weeks. and the big problem for the president is they're facing three showdowns with the congress over shutting down the government, over the debt limit over the sequester, which has already led to severe cuts in government funding. and the president has precious little leverage there. but he believes and the white house believes that the republican party is in an even weaker position. that if they shut down the government over their cause to defund obamacare, they will relegate themselves to a minority status for a generation. >> they have a lot on their plate domestically and internationally. all right, george, thank yo

. >> we should note the congresswoman at that town hall, alabama's martha roby didn't respond to the questioner but her office did issue a statement, "she wasn't there to endorse anyone's views but rather to listen. this is a group that was targeted for their political beliefs by the irs only to have the president call it a phony scandal. you bet they are frustrated about this administration." but professor, is it really necessary to describe the president as an american-hating despot? >> yeah, exactly. or to say he's foreign born. that's where the representative missed her opportunity to distinguish herself as a leader. because if you're a follower, then you'll just follow the folk off a cliff. if you're a leader you stand tall and say we know this president was born in this nation. that's been asked and answered and unfortunately and unnecessarily vetted over and over again. we've got to move beyond those attacks to address thei ivssuest hand. >> professor, this nation is thriving in many ways. 7 million jobs created in the last 40 months, the stock market at record highs. h
